Pieter Knops

Data Scientist

With a Double Master’s degree of Mathematical Sciences and Computing Science at Utrecht University, Pieter has a strong foundation in Scientific Computing, Algorithmic Data Analysis, Algorithmic Optimization and Operations Research.
Already from the beginning of his studies, he has always been looking for relevant projects to apply his knowledge and skills to, and solve challenging real-life problems.

He started at Energyworx during his studies; a new chapter filled with challenges in the important and innovative field of energy data solutions.
As personal goal he has to show what amazing things you can learn from data, and what process optimizations are possible in making energy production, delivery and consumption more efficient.

His goal-oriented attitude is also clearly visible in sports: Running marathons and finishing multiple ultra-cycling events.
In his free time, Pieter has tought himself to play the piano and how to manage beehives, which he already is doing from an age of 12.

Pieter is filled with positive energy, and has a strong willingness to take on challenges and learn new things. He loves working in an inspiring and motivated team.

Everything we do is designed to accelerate the world’s transition to clean energy. We do this through technology innovation.

We live in a changing Energy World, moving away from fossil fuels transitioning in a complex new Energy Mix from demand to supply and a change from centralized to distributed generation. People and communities care about energy efficiency and want to be engaged in reducing their environmental impact. This requires a rethink of the structure and suppleness of the Smart Grid and its systems. Data is fuelling the Industry and Energyworx is putting these disparate data streams and stores to use with high tech energy intelligence, based on time series analytics and machine learning concepts, to solve today’s information challenges. We deliver value in days, rather than months or years. We therefore only work with the most talented people who share our DNA. Do you have what it takes?

  • You walk the extra mile
    You are intrinsically passionate about what you do. You focus on our clients and if necessary, work all night to deliver what you promised. You do not have a 9-5 mentality and you have an eye for every important detail.
